The security key you need to enable wifi on your tv is not in your pc but in your wireless router. Your wireless router serves as a "hub" for your network and controls access to your wireless network. However, you can access your wireless router from your PC by doing the following:

Open a DOS Window (just put "cmd" into a search and look for command prompt). Once you get a DOS prompt open, type the following "ipconfig" (without the quotes since they are there only to tell you what to type) and press the enter key. You may have to scroll up and down in the window but somewhere near the top you will find some IP address, Subnet and Gateway, each followed by some numbers. The Gateway number is what you want. Write it down. It has 4 parts with periods between each part. Example (this is a very common one so don't be surprised if it's what you see). Once you write this down you can close the window. Now open any browser and put these numbers into the address bar. If you are connected to the Internet a box will pop up asking you to log in. Here you put in the user name (usually "admin") and the password (which may be on the router as some kind of ID number or which may have been given to you when the router was set up). After you log in go to the wireless section and either reset the password (i.e. wireless security key) or see what it is. Do write it down and you should get your TV hooked up in no time.

Good luck with this.

SOURCE: I used The FN and F5 key and it worked

Hi Trump,

What you are experiencing is the resolution settings of one device being used on the other.

Right click on the desk top
Click properties
Click the settings Tab
On the lower left increase the screen resolution (only a little at a time)
If you can read the screen that comes up, click OK.
If you can't, DO NOTHING. The original screen will return in 15 seconds
Click apply or OK

Hope this helps

SOURCE: my acer lap top is asking me for my security key

You will find it in the routers settings.
If it is asking for YOUR security key, you must have set one when you first installed the router.
Log on to your router / wireless / security
And check what the passord is..... OR
you can use free software to recover your wireless key if you have ever used the key on that computer

I m unable to connect wifi for my samsung 65 led tv

Does the TV have WiFi enabled? Is it in range of your WiFi router? Is the place where the TV is located a WiFi dead spot? Does the TV see your WiFi router, and is it the strongest signal in the TV's locality? Are your neighbours using the same WiFi channel as you? Have you got the router set to block MAC addresses? Is the TV set to use DHCP? Is the router handing out IP addresses? What security level are you using? Are you putting in the correct WiFi password? The list goes on and on.....

We have lost the product key when we moved home and we are after using a wifi conection with a lap top


Do you want a product key to get on to the WiFi at the new location? If so then you need not worry as the person who come to install the new router will ask you what new password you want to use to be able to connect the laptop to the internet.

If the problem is different then please clarify.

Acquiring network address

all that you need to do is to delete the preferred networks list from the computer,
and try to scan and connect to the network again....make sure that you are typing the correct security key.
still if the problem exixts, then add the network manually...the problem will get off for sure....
also if there is any facility like wi-fi protected security is enabled in the wireless router, go ahead and disable it...
